About Me

Welcome to my world.

 I’m Anna, a DIY loving, tea drinking, Northern girl.

 Made Up Style is my retreat to share my style inspirations, DIY makes and journey to creating a more sustainable life.

I started Made Up Style when I was unemployed and looking for a job as a creative escape. Now three years later I am working full time in my dream job as a textile designer and write this blog in my spare time.

Whilst at Uni I was editor of the fashion section for the student magazine, Label. I loved writing fashion trend articles, styling photoshoots and interviewing brands. Leaving my uni days behind me, I now do a bit of freelance trend journalism for a local magazine every month.

Writing this blog has open many amazing doors, one being the chance to work with AO as a freelance DIY contributor for their lifestyle hub. Creating exciting and fun how-to videos for their readers is a dream come true. Check out my videos here…

I’ve also written a few fun DIY tutorials for crafty magazine, Mollie Makes!

 Thank you for popping by!
